3 Bhuna is a small, garbage-collected language with a simple syntax, closures,
4 inferred types, lightweight processes, and support for UTF-8 source code.
5
6 It was implemented partly to see how closely I could match the performance
7 of Lua's interpreter.
8
9 It is not well-specified; it was designed more-or-less by fiat of building
10 the interpreter. I originally wrote it on FreeBSD, while figuring out how
11 to implement closures (the hard way.) So for the longest time, building it
12 required BSD `make` and the associated support files from FreeBSD. Now,
13 however, it has a self-contained `Makefile` and can be built with GNU `make`.
14
15 It is also now covered under a BSD-style license; see the file `LICENSE`.

17 The Bhuna project is basically dead. See [Kosheri][] for a virtual machine
18 that sprang from its ashes.
